Drying question
    #1770977 - 08/01/03 10:03 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I just built a box for drying out my mushrooms. Originally i got a fan and had it blow down into the container. Would it be a better idea to make a few holes on the bottom sides and have the fan pointing the other way, pulling the air and moisture out of the box?

i can't visualise what you've got got, but no, i don't think so.

sounds to me like aiming the fan at the shrooms is your best option for now; otherwise your fan won't necessarily be sucking only the air from by your shrooms, but anywhere nearby. go buy some desiccant to make yourself an airtight crisping tub for after the fan.

A food dehydrator with no heating element is the one on the right. And you could add dessicant. But what do I know? I don't spend all my time posting.

Adding dessicant probably wont do much good if the container isn't sealed. However, after the fanning process, dessicant works great to make the shrooms bone dry, getting the last bit of moisture out.

Govna is right. Fan then dessicant. Not at the same time, it's a waste. The dessicant won't dry them any quicker and you'll just be wasting dessicant.

would it be possible to get mushrooms cracker dry by just fanning them a really long time?

Or how 'bout the method where you put a clip on lamp over the mushrooms covered with a black t-shirt

Yeah you can get them dry with a fan, but it's not nearly as quick and you'd have to keep them in a pretty dry place for a while to fan. You're much better off just fanning for a day then putting in a dessicant chamber.
